Blueberry Nectarine Buckle

Easy dessert featuring blueberries (or other fruit). It's a beautiful thing, loaded with blueberries and simply fabulous.

It must be a really good year for blueberries and I swear I’ve made a ton of blueberry desserts – some with success, some not. This Blueberry Nectarine Buckle was perfect (even if the pics aren’t the greatest) and just loaded with fruit.

Swedish Pancakes “Pannkakor” with Blueberry Compote

fabulous crepe like pancakes with a fake marscapone topping & sugar free blueberry  compote.

Awhile back, I made the most marvelous Strawberry Cheesecake Pancakes for Mother’s day. They were awesome. They were fabulous. But they set off some kind of deep seated craving for more brunch! More and more brunch! I want brunch all the time, now! Do you ever get like that – just go on a kick like a runaway train?

Cream Puffs with Mascarpone Filling & Blueberry Compote

If there was ever a frugal “cheat” of a dessert, Profiteroles, or Cream Puffs, as they are often called, have to be it. Easy to make, requiring no special equipment, although a piping bag & tips is nice, inexpensive, and they can be made ahead. And once made, they can be filled & topped with all kinds of deliciousness. What more could one want?

Chicken & Fruit Salad with Raspberry Dressing

I’ve been making this Chicken & Fruit Salad for years, originally culled from Cooking Light. It’s just such a gorgeous salad, full of all kinds of great things and it’s all set off by a creamy raspberry dressing. It’s one of my favorite ways to make sure I get some fruit in my diet along with a few greens. On a hot summer day, there’s nothing better.

Lemon Poppyseed – The Easiest Fruit Salad You’ll Never Need a Recipe For

There’s a little something about this combination of fruit that does it for me: Honey Dew, Strawberries and Blueberries. Add in a simple, lemony dressing (I’m almost embarrassed to tell you, it’s so easy) of lemon yogurt, finely zested lemon and a few poppy seeds, and there you have it. Familiar, tasty and just a bit sophisticated; this always goes over well.

Spinach Quinoa Salad with Candied Pecans

There’s salad, and then there’s SALAD – you know, the one that shouts rather than whispers?  The one you want MORE of…the salad that has that little something extra to take it over the top.  What is it about salty, sweet, tart that makes you want to take another bite and another and another…
